Thanks for the reply. I am planning a Home Theater and am thinking about putting the speakers behind an acoustically transparent screen. I am debating whether to spend time finishing the speakers or just hastily painting them black since they will likely never been seen.
I admit, I am waffling between the 4Pi and the DIY Sound Group HT-10 or HT-12. I am trying to keep my costs down and the 4Pi's are quite a bit more expensive. I am "sold" on the need for a high-sensitivity speaker which offers excellent off-axis response and both seem like contenders.
I'd appreciate any thoughts on the advantages of the 4Pi over DIYSG offerings. There are some older threads on AVSForum which were quite passionate but seemed less based on facts/measurements. I'm not trying stir things up!
